The decrease is principally due to source retirements, which have both reduced the estimated overall number of affected sources and shifted the estimated mix of monitoring methodologies used. The other factors contributing to the decrease in burden are reductions in the estimated numbers of allowance transfer and deduction PO 00000 Frm 00034 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 submissions, expected opt-in sources, and allowance auction bids.

In the February 10, 2021 notice, EPA indicated that it would issue an order implementing the cancellations and amendments to terminate uses, unless the Agency received substantive comments within the 30-day comment period that would merit its further review of these requests, or unless the registrants withdrew their requests.

Accordingly, EPA hereby issues in this notice a cancellation order granting the requested cancellations and amendments to terminate uses. Any distribution, sale, or use of the products subject to this cancellation order is permitted only in accordance with the terms of this order, including any existing stocks provisions.

    Abstract: The Acid Rain Program was established under Title IV of 
the 1990 Clean Air Act Amendments to address acid deposition by 
reducing emissions of sulfur dioxide (SO2) and nitrogen 
oxides (NOX). This information collection extension is 
necessary to continue implementation of the Acid Rain Program. It 
includes burden and costs associated with developing and modifying 
permits, complying with NOX permitting requirements, 
monitoring emissions, transferring allowances, participating in the 
annual allowance auctions, and participating in the program as an opt-

    Estimated number of respondents: 1,219 (total); includes 1,169 
sources and 50 non-source entities participating in allowance trading 
activities.
    Frequency of response: On occasion, quarterly, and annually.
    Total estimated burden: 1,826,133 hours (per year). Burden is

    Total estimated cost: $276,811,849 (per year); includes

    Changes in Estimates: There is a decrease of 47,747 hours in the 
total estimated respondent burden compared with the ICR currently 
approved by OMB. The decrease is principally due to source retirements, 
which have both reduced the estimated overall number of affected 
sources and shifted the estimated mix of monitoring methodologies used. 
The other factors contributing to the decrease in burden are reductions 
in the estimated numbers of allowance transfer and deduction 
submissions, expected opt-in sources, and allowance auction bids.
